Antistatic foam deteriorates and turns to goo over time, also most 3d printer plastic is not antistatic.
Get antistatic chip tubes. They will be marked “anti-static”. Be careful IC sockets are typically shipped in tubes that are not antistatic and so they won’t be marked that way. So get the right tubes.
